PLAYING CARDS iMiwtone .1 1 CARDS i Youths Under 19 Used to Replace Combat Casualties WASHINGTON, D. C. Undersecretary of War Robert P. Patterson disclosed today that under a recent change in policy boys under 19 are now being sent overeas as combat replacements in the infantry and the armored forces. This change. Patterson said, was uuilti necessary by the iir(t,,.j of military requirements, and the new -nMcy will continue in effect as -rtr ni he roq"ireT"pr- of v-i- d---.-M It. He eTclilncd thr-t up I" 'f4l. the rreit ml.lorltv (jf mn h. 'tif Induced were nve- 1ft y:i!? fre. Bv Octoher nf this yo?.r. however, 40 percent of the inductees were under 19. In the meantime, the nace of operations had been greatly stepped up, the bulk of the army went into action, and consequently, the need for replacements increased. Patterson related that before the new policy was instituted, the armj tapped every other available source of manpower. Men were withdrawn from fixed Installations in file Unit - ed States, from units declared surplus, and thousands from divisions in training in the United Slates to a point where further withdrawals would have seriously interfered with the completion of divisional train ing. Patterson pointed out that the change meant no relaxation in pre-combat training. A minimum of approximately eight months, he said, elapses between induction and assignment to an active sector of the front. In addition, no man is committed to combat until he has passed individual tests and physical examinations confirming the state of training and fitneBS for the rigors of battle. At the same time, Patterson declared that we are now engaged in a type of fighting resulting in heavy casualties. "This type of fighting, where an adequately equipped and w-ell led enemy in prepared positions is determined to try to hold his ground at a sacrifice, is inevitably costly." Pattersonvsaid. He disclosed that total army cas ualties reported through Nov. are 474.898. ah increase of more than 20.000 since those reported as of Nov. 7. Of the total, 91,625 were reported killed, 2G8.099 wounded, 58,926 missing, and 56,-24 8 prisoners of war. Pa'terson added, however, that 'he eneniv with less Intensity of ar-'tllery fire and with greatly inferior air power, is suffering more severely than the-Allies. i ' GOU 1 A 7..n.
